‘Explosion proof’ upgrade

10 August 2011

An explosion protection company has developed a new concept for the explosion protection of generator sets or pumps used in brown and green field oil and gas installations.

Pyroban claims that the new Flamepack upgrade can be installed on to a generator in one month after thorough engineering, and reduces major costs to achieve ATEX 94/9/EC compliance.

Generator sets and pumps are widely used in oil and gas installations across the world and many are required to operate safely within potentially explosive atmospheres. Without appropriate explosion protection, the prime mover can be the source of an ignition; a very real problem for many installations that operate without protection.

The company has recently launched the system following a significant development programme, testing and field trials. The Flamepack is predominantly a self-contained, open frame module that sits on top of the generator set container and connects to the diesel engine with limited intervention. Depending on the engine size and type, the Flamepack spans the associated container width and length and sits approximately 1500mm - 1900mm tall.

Fitted locally, typically during planned maintenance activity to avoid operational downtime, the Flamepack has been developed to suit various brands including Caterpillar, MTU, Volvo, and Cummins. Flamepack is specified according to the specific application and supplied and implemented by Pyroban in the UK with full global aftersales service and technical support.
